Assura Group is pleased to raise awareness of Dementia Friends

07.11.2013

Dementia Friends is a national initiative that is being run by Alzheimer’s Society. It’s funded by the government, and aims to improve people’s understanding of dementia and its effects. Alzheimer’s Society is working with lots of volunteers and other organisations to achieve this goal. Because, together, we can create dementia friendly communities.

People with dementia sometimes need a helping hand to go about their daily lives and feel included in their local community. Dementia Friends is giving people an understanding of dementia and the small things that they can do that could make a difference to people living with dementia.

We want to create a network of a million Dementia Friends across England by 2015.

You can get involved in two ways: become a Dementia Friends Champion or become a Dementia Friend.

Dementia Friends is funded by the Cabinet Office and Department of Health.
